NVIDIA GeForce GT220OC and GT210OC launch Review

These are not gaming cards that is the first thing to get out of the way. If you are looking for a fast video card I would suggest looking elsewhere as these cards do not have the performance to run the latest and greatest games without some sacrifice in playability resolution or setting. On the other hand performance on the GT220 OC from Gigabyte was enough to play many games with some decent performance numbers at low resolutions and is a nice upgrade from the Intel integrated or AMD integrated graphics on their motherboards without spending too much money. The GT212 supports PhysX in games like Batman Arkham Asylum. The GT210 card on the other hand is a good fit for a low-profile PC that doesn't have the space and is just ok at gaming at low resolution. GIGABYTE has included extra value with the Gold Plated HDMI connectors that can improve the signal from your HDMI HDTV. By Benjamin Sun
